I'm currently on the depo shot, and just had my consultation appointment for the nexplanon. I go to have it inserted March 11. One question I failed to ask was how does it typically effect your sex drive. Since being on the shot mine has been nonexistent unfortunately. He did mention the fact that the shot is a much higher dose of hormones than the implant, so does that mean it should be better? Also I had a baby six months ago so I'm assuming that could be part of the reason. Anyhow, point being does the fact that the shot causes lower sex drive for me mean the implant will be the same?
